Courtney Stodden may be living “like a princess” these days, but the 17-year-old aspiring actress and singer didn’t always have it so easy. If you recall, long before her marriage to 51-year-old Doug Hutchison, she posted a six-minute YouTube video in which she addresses bullies (and reads some of their mean comments on her site). Earlier in her childhood (as in, last year), her mother took her out of school because she was being harassed by other students.
Courtney has her share of critics these days, but the outspoken teen seems to know how to brush that dirt off her shoulder. That’s why we asked her if she has advice for other victims of bullying out there.
“My advice for victims of bullies would be, victims, you need to realize that it’s not [you],” she told TheFABlife. “It’s the bully who’s picking on them, it’s their problem. There’s nothing wrong with the victim. They’re perfect, they’re beautiful, and they need to stay true to themselves. Not just because someone who isn’t true to themselves is picking on you. They need to think about that, realize that and embrace the truth.”
“If I hadn’t married Doug, I would still be pursuing my music, definitely,” Courtney told TheFABlife. “I would probably still be involved in acting and learning that. I would probably be down the same path I’m on now, but I wouldn’t be blessed with this gift of great success so early on. But I’d still be pursuing the same thing.”
That’s basically the most self-aware thing we’ve ever heard her say. Courtney has already recorded the three songs streaming on her website and YouTube channel — “Crazy,” “Car Candy” and “We Are America” — and she says there’s more on the way. Read more…
It’s taken a few months, America, but we may finally be accepting the fact that Courtney Stodden and Doug Hutchison are the real thing. I mean, why else would we see the 17-year-old aspiring starlet and her 51-year-old actor husband going to church and the mall together on Sunday? Not for the photo op, surely! Anyway, we here at TheFABlife had the chance to take a little peek into the everyday lives of this fascinating couple — not the Dr. Drew-style peek, either — when Courtney answered a few questions on camera.
First up, we wondered, with their age gap, do Courtney and Doug have the same taste in music, movies and TV shows? (Subtext: Is that, at least, like hanging out with someone’s dad?)
But Courtney said they do like some of the same things and have been introducing each other to new ones. “There’s fine lines in between what we share and what we teach each other,” she said enthusiastically. “I’ve turned him on to Maroon 5, Train and all the new awesome bands. And he’s turned me on to some of his music. We’re batting that back and forth and exploring each world.”
And like many a kid raised on Nick-at-Nite, Courtney knows her old-timey TV shows, like, erm, “I Love Lucy’s.”
“I love I Love Lucy’s, The Honeymooners, Green Acres. We love that kind of stuff,” she said. “But it’s so cute: Doug calls Maroon 5 ‘Monsoon 5.’ He’s like, ‘YEAH! Monsoon 5!’ It’s so embarrassing, but it’s darling too.” Read more…
Courtney Stodden: 1, Doubters: 0. In case you missed it, Courtney allowed strangers to touch her boobs on national TV yesterday, in front of husband Doug Hutchison. Well, OK, it was a plastic surgeon and his ultrasound technician, and they were on Dr. Drew’s Lifechangers to prove once and for all how to solve the national debt crisis. Or the question of whether Courtney has breast implants.
It looked a little dicey there for a second ( a circular shape seemed to indicate an implant), but in the end, the doctor said Courtney was telling the truth: no knife has touched those breasts. Which, yeah, lots of 17-year-olds have perfect bodies, so it makes sense. What we really wish is that she would go on a show and have someone surgically remove 95 percent of her makeup. Read more…
It looks like Facebook defriended Courtney Stodden. The social networking site apparently banned the seventeen year old for posting “inappropriate sexual content” on her page. The peeps at Facebook seem to have gotten “sexual” confused with “creepy”, but we still agree with the end result. However, not everyone feels that way. Her mother (of all people) is speaking out against the ban, saying that she was cool with the racy pix. But then again this is the same woman who signed off on letting Courtney marry 51-year-old actor Doug Hutchinson. Just sayin’.
“There is nothing on her page you wouldn’t find anywhere on Facebook!” her mom told E! News. “She has never done any nudity. Not a breast, not even a butt cheek. It’s just her in a bathing suit!” She claims that the real reason is that we’re all just jealous of her daughter’s underage hotness. “It’s the jealousy from the women towards her. The men love her, the women hate her. The women report the photo because it’s so easy to do. You just click a button.” She even suspects a massive female conspiracy to keep her child’s semi nude body from reaching a wider audience. “They think she’s too sexy, they all report her together, and it’s done.”
Amazingly, Facebook reps heard her mother’s complaints and reinstated Courtney’s privileges late this afternoon.”This page was removed in error and has been restored,” Facebook said in a statement. “We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.” Perverts all over the world silently accepted the apology.
